Hello Pazzles Craft Room Friends! I am so glad to be here with you today. This month I got a chance to play with the Pazzles Rhinestone Kit. What fun!

It was very thorough and informative.

InVue Project Pattern: Autumn Tags

Tags have become one of my favorite projects lately. They dress up a gift or treat and are quick to create. In fact, I think tags are easier than cards. After pouring my creativity into the outside of a card, I always struggle with the inside. Not so, with tags. There is no inside to worry about!  This set of Autumn Tags has plenty of versatility for almost any fall occasion. There are several fun elements to the tags to get your creative juices flowing. Use your Pen Tool to write the saying on the tag. You can always change the phrase to something you want right in the software so no need to buy separate stamp sentiments. Create a fun shadow stencil by laying down a cut piece and sponging ink or spritzing glimmer mist over the stencil.

Software Tip: Docking Windows

Every once in a while I get a question that I don't even really think about anymore, because I have been using the InVue software for quite some time. Fortunately, I am lucky to work with so many people that are new to Pazzles and I get to remember some of those beginning steps of using the software. The question I got a few weeks ago is,  "My color palette is gone, how can I get it back?" The good news is, it is very easy to fix.  Across the top of your screen click on the word Window, then click on Docking Windows.  You will see the options of items that will show on the right side of your software.  I recommend making sure there is a check mark in front of each one. One small tip, if you happen to have a very small screen and will not need those items docked on the right, you can temporarily turn these off and give yourself a little bit more area to work in.

Rubber Stamp Kit: Falling ...

Autumn is my favorite season of the year, with cooler temperatures and gorgeous fall colors. The leaves with their multiple colors, shapes and textures always garner my attention.  This month I wanted to try my hand at making stamps with my Pazzles Inspiration Vue, inspired by the wonderful fall leaves. Pazzles stamp kit contains everything you need to create stamps—two different thicknesses of special rubber, cling mounting foam, a sanding block and acrylic block to mount your stamps.  The Pazzles Craft Room has a video  that clearly explains the entire process from finding an appropriate design to putting the stamp together. The Pazzles Craft Room Library has a collection of Falling Autumn leaves, and unable to decide which one to use, I chose three--Falling Autumn Oak, Falling Autumn Sugar Maple  and Falling Autumn Swirl Aspen.  Fall Word Titles contained the word “Blessed” which is perfect for a word stamp. It may be used for many projects and cards throughout the year, so I eliminated the leaf tail for the stamp.
